A music festival in the UK has been cancelled after an 18 year old woman and 20 year old man died on Saturday.

The two-day Mutiny Music Festival in a suburb of Portsmouth was axed after a woman became unwell before being brought to Queen Alexandra Hospital where she later died.

Half an hour later, a man was found collapsed and was rushed to the same hospital where he died later that evening.

Dizzee Rascal, Craig David, Sean Paul and British actor Idris Elba were due to headline over the weekend.

The festival tweeted this warning yesterday evening:
